    Amsteel 7/64" is only 2 grams per foot. Dynaglide is even less.

    My whoopie is attached to my tree strap and at the end of the strap is a loop with a sewn in dutch clip. I only recently added the dutch clip but for ease and speed of deployment that's what I'll be using from now on.

    You guys are talking about how simple a Marlin spike is to use but why are there so many stories and warnings about them failing? My suspension would be tough to not set up correctly.

    Most of the posts I've seen in that regard seem to have been bad toggle material (rotten trail sticks, etc) or hanging the suspension *on* the toggle rather than behind the marlinspike knot.
